Poor fertility and high death rates are a common problem of breeder herds in the dry tropics of northern Australia.
Supplements which contain a high proportion of non-protein nitrogen i.e. urea, are designed to maintain the animal’s condition when pasture crude protein levels fall. Urea stimulates the growth of the animal’s rumen microbe population, allowing greater utilisation of the available pasture.
LNT Uramol® is an 86% protein (30% urea) and 3.6% phosphorous block and has been used successfully as a dry season supplement in northern Australia for more than forty years.
Extensive trials have shown strategic supplementation of breeders during the dry with LNT Uramol® followed by supplementation with LNT Phosrite® during the wet, will generally improve herd fertility significantly.

LNT Boost® is a palatable block containing 35% protein, macro and trace minerals for weaner, growing and breeding cattle, sheep and goats.
LNT Boost® contains an optimal blend of bypass protein and urea with molasses to provide a high performance production supplement.
The LNT Boost® has been specifically formulated to provide graziers with a lower urea, block supplement alternative. While over many years, LNT Boost® has built a strong reputation as a highly effective weaner block.

The Wet season in Northern Australia usually represents the most productive time of the year for graziers. Cattle usually perform at their best during this period due to vastly improved grazing conditions compared with the dry season.
However, phosphorus deficiency is one of the most limiting factors to beef cattle production during the Wet Season in Northern Australia where most of the region is naturally deficient.
To help manage these deficiencies in northern Australia, LNT has produced wet season supplement, LNT Phosrite®.
LNT Phosrite® is a 45% protein and 5% phosphorous block for cattle grazing high volumes of green or maturing feed on phosphorous deficient country.
LNT Phosrite® is suitable for:
